I was surprised to learn that mathematical research goes beyond what one might believe...My mathematics research includes epidemiology and immunology. 


After graduation, I plan on obtaining my master's degree in aerospace engineering, and a career in the aerospace industry.

I was surprised to learn how much data organization and interpretation skills were involved in research. I also learned research is exploratory. There are so many avenues for your research to go, as well as previous articles to compare. 


My future career goals consist of going to graduate school for chemistry and becoming an epidemiologist.

I was surprised that research was fun and exciting! It has not been as hard as I thought it would be. 


My future career goals include becoming a surgeon and creating a nonprofit organization to serve underrepresented students who have interests in various fields but no resources to accomplish their goals.
